Mappy Monday - some links
Instead of digging a map from my own collection, I thought I would link to some map and map-related sites instead. Here are a few of my favourites, in no particular order.
Digital collections of historic maps
Maps for research (UK)
Old Street Plans (UK)
A vision of Britain through time
London: a life in maps
Booth poverty maps (London)
Maps of Scotland
Historical Map & Chart Collection (USA)
Library of Congress map collections
I put this list together in a few minutes, from my favourites list. Maybe you'll find something here you didn't know about before - I hope you find something you like. But if you want to read an article by someone who really took some time and trouble over it, I recommend:
Mapping out the past, a post from Kith and Kin Research (aka Luke Mouland).
